"Works great, as long as you don't need a printed copy."

Pros

There are so many negatives about this program that it's hard to list a positive. The only pro I can say is the ability to edit text fonts & size.

Cons

This program is super clunky. Trying to type text in close proximity to other text is problematic at best. It tries to combine text fields that are close by - example -- try to enter your separated Last, First & MI, in a block that encompasses the width of the sheet. Select the "Insert" text button, enter your last name. Not select the "Insert text" button again, move over to the area to enter your first name - the program will probably attempt to combine your last name entry and first name entry into the same box it creates. This program requires you to take entirely too many steps just to enter data in the correct places. And you can't print just 1 page of a multiple page document either. It's all or none. It took me a while to determine the quirks just to get text entered where it should be. Once I got a grasp on entering data & got everything entered on the form, I printed the 6 page form - remember I said it won't print 1 page. I entered text on 4 of the 6 pages........

Summary

Real cute. The cons field says 799 of 1,000 characters, but I can't enter more data.
Thankfully I'm only using the trial version & didn't pay for this worthless product. And I'm not paying for something until I try it first. To finish my "cons" section above, this program printed data all over the form. There is almost nothing I typed in a location it's supposed to be. And it printed several large black blobs, where it printed multiple text fields in one location.
I'm using it on a Win 10 machine, so maybe it won't work with 10. I may try it on a Win 7 machine to see what happens.

"Very thorough, very satisfied"

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

Extremely fast, reliable, stable
Accurate pdf editing
Cost is much low compared to competition with same feature set
Great customer service

Cons

xxxxxxxxxx

Summary

I needed a pdf editor for my daily office work, where I have to make edits in the documents received from my customers all over the world. I tested Acrobat Pro. It was good but mighty expensive. I searched for a cheaper alternative & found Classic PDF. It has the same feature set as of Acrobat but comes at a much much lower price tag. It's fast, accurate & stable. Couldn't have asked for more or better.

August 18, 2015  |  By Danny Plaze

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

* Flawless conversion of pdf to ms word
* Creates pdf by combining multiple documents of any type
* Works with all versions of PDFs that I could test
* Can edit pdf documents like a text editor!

Cons

* Trial version is limited to 3 days use

Summary

Given it's price, it is unbelievably good. Especially in a market, where other similar software are ridiculously expensive.

"Useless to us"

May 20, 2015  |  By drodddd

2015-05-20 14:44:10  |  By drodddd

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

None we can find.

Cons

Help files tell us nothing except the topic. Can't find a way to edit text in a pdf document. We try and lines of text start rotating... upside down... covering up other stuff on the page. It finally crashed and we had to reboot our big Dell Precision Workstation because we couldn't close the pdf editor. They don't allow an adequate evaluation period, and refuse to give a refund. You have open a dispute with PayPal to get your money back. Obviously they have no confidence in their product at all... and I can understand why.

Summary

A waste of time and a waste of money and people who snarky if you ask for a refund the day after you download it. Not the kind of people we choose to do business with.

"This software is not advanced enough for my needs."

January 22, 2015  |  By Goyalsang

2015-01-22 18:31:36  |  By Goyalsang

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

* Lets you view PDFs (though I already have software for that)
* Can add text (though this feature is limited)
* Can add pictures or watermarks (still a bit limited)
* Can export PDFs to Word document

Cons

* Not free
* Can't add or delete pages
* Can't move pages
* Doesn't have any advanced features - in fact, it has very few features at all

Summary

Overall, this software is only good for adding limited pictures and text as well as converting PDFs to Word docs. This software is not advanced enough for my needs and it doesn't stand out from other PDF editing software or online editors. I would like to see the ability to add/remove/move pages, the ability to edit text in a more advanced fashion, and just more features that Adobe Acrobat has. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named Wondershare PDFelement:

www.pdf-file-converter.com/wondershare-pdf-editor/

and it lived up to my expectations. PS I'm not advertising this program. I just found it useful and thought of sharing with others. I would also advise you to try before you buy.

"Not very happy with it. Wish I never spent the money."

April 08, 2014  |  By dougbeek

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

Edits okay. Can add and delete pages quite nicely.

Cons

Cannot simply double click on a file to launch the program. Every time I use it, I have to right click on the program Icon then choose "Run as administrator", then choose "Open" from within the application, then browse for the file I want to edit. Extremely annoying - especially since I do a lot of work with PDF files.

Summary

Edits okay. Can add and delete pages quite nicely. However, I cannot simply double click on a file to launch the program. I was told by the support team that every time I use it, I have to right click on the program Icon then choose "Run as administrator", then choose "Open" from within the application, then browse for the file I want to edit. Extremely annoying - especially since I do a lot of work with PDF files. Wish I never spent the money on it.

 |  Version: Classic PDF Editor 12.0

Pros

Nothing. I guess it easy to read

Cons

Does not edit or do anything a PDF editor should do.

Summary

install adware!!! Like conduit. The promo does not let you do the basics, even though it say it does. Could not edit, cut realign etc. Just adds text to pdf. THAT'S IT!
